Description

Crisp, firm fruit surrounded by a bright red with darker red-streaks skin with a slightly yellow background. Medium-sized symmetrical and globose conical shaped with thinner skin.  This sweet, succulent apple is a high coloured sport from the ‘Royal Gala’, which is a cross between a Golden Delicious and Kidd’s Orange Red.

Grafted onto a Malling 9 selection NIC 29 (M9 NIC29) rootstock. Fully dwarfing (30-40% of standard). Very hardy and disease tolerant. Precocious; induces flowering earlier in maturity. May require support (staking or trellising). NIC29 is more vigorous than other M9 selections and is used to improve the vigour of certain scions such as Honeycrisp.

3/8″ caliper bareroot or #5 potted

Rootstock Details

Budagovsky 9 (B.9) – Dwarfing rootstock resulting from a cross between M.8 x ‘Red Standard’ (Krasnij Standard) from Russia. B.9 has been widely tested and is used commercially. It is slightly more dwarfing than M.9 and is slightly more productive. Other traits of note: Very early precocity; very winter hardy; little suckering; requires support; adapted to well-drained soil; very resistant to crown rot; more fireblight resistant than M.9.

Malling 9 Nic29 (M.9 Nic29) – A dwarfing rootstock selection of M.9 made in Belgium and is slightly more vigorous than other M.9 selections. M.9 is used to impart vigour to cultivars such as Empire or Honeycrisp. Slightly larger tree; between M.9 and M.26 in size. Low to no suckering.

Geneva 2020 (G.202) – Geneva 202 (G.202) is a semi-dwarfing rootstock that produces a tree slightly larger than M.26. It was developed from a cross of M.27 and Robusta 5. It is fire blight and phytophthora resistant as well as having resistance to woolly apple aphids. The rootstock has been mainly tested in New York and New Zealand. In New Zealand, they are looking at this rootstock as a possible replacement for M.26 since it is more productive than M.26

Ottawa 3 (O. 3) – This rootstock was bred in Canada for its cold hardiness, with one parent being M.9. Trees on O.3 are about the size of M.9 EMLA but smaller than M.26. Induces early bearing. Resistant to collar rot, but susceptible to fire blight and woolly apple aphids. Ottawa 3, although being available for many years, has not been popular with the nursery industry. Linden Lane Farms has rootstock from an original, disease-free stool block from the University of Saskatchewan and is looking into grafting local varieties such as ‘Transparent’ for hobbyist growers in the near future.

Bare-root Tree Planting Guide

By definition, bare-root trees are not grown in a pot and will not have any soil around their roots – hence the name “bare root”. Our bare-root trees are dormant, which makes them easier to transplant since they experience less transpiration (water loss) immediately after planting because they do not have growing leaf tissue. The best thing you can do for new bare-root stock is to avoid shock as much as possible, so don’t wait until it’s too late in the season to plant. The best time to plant a bare-root tree, or any other bare-root plant, is in the fall or early spring. If you cannot plant right away, is also very important to not let the roots dry out completely as this will severely reduce the viability after planting. 

Steps to planting a bare-root tree;

  • Prepare the planting site
    • Remove all perennial weeds and grasses within 3-4ft of the tree’s location.
      • Grass growing close to the trunk is the easiest way to stunt/dwarf trees, which is not what you want in the first few developing seasons.
    • A planting hole that is large enough to accommodate the current root system with some extra room to grow.
      • For fruit trees, we recommend a round hole at least 3′ W x 2.5′ D. This sized hole or larger will allow the new roots to grow into freshly worked soil over the course of a few years.
      • It probably makes little sense to dig any hole deeper than 2’. Most deciduous fruit trees (standard or dwarf) have a somewhat fibrous root system in which their effective feeding roots are typically in the top 1–2’ of the soil. While they may have “anchor” roots that go deeper, these roots are adept at growing downward themselves.
    • Add compost and/or fertilizer to the hole and soil removed during digging.
  • Spread out the dormant tree’s roots to encourage outward growth.
  • Keep the tree vertical in the planting hole (perpendicular to the ground) so that it grows straight.
    • Use stakes or metal posts to encourage straight growth especially with dwarfing rootstocks and windy sites.
      • The key with tree support is to loosely tie the tree to allow it to still move in the wind so it develops its own support for when you remove the post after a few seasons.
      • It is recommended that some dwarfing rootstock remain trellised for their lifetime as their root structure will not be able to support their heavy fruit weights before harvest. Search high-density orchards for more information. BC HD Planting Manual. OMAFRA HD Orchard Trellis Video. 
  • Refill the hole with native soil (what was removed at digging time), and any other soil amendments. Keep the graft union (noticeable “bump” in the lower trunk) 2-3 inches above the ground. Also, be aware of bud and branch locations when setting in your tree.

  • Gently tamp out any air pockets from the soil once the planting hole is filled, but not too hard to damage the roots or cause compaction.

  • Thoroughly water your newly planted tree.
  • Prune tree! See our guide to pruning fruit trees.
  • (Optional) Mulch around the newly planted tree to help retain and balance soil moisture as the new roots begin to develop. We recommend wood chips as straw grass clipping and sawdust can create over-wintering habitats for rodents who will damage the trunks of the trees.

‘Leikora’ Sea Buckthorn [Female]

$18.00

This female cultivar of Sea Buckthorn was selected for high yields, of large fruits rich in Vitamins A, C (about 7 times more than lemons) & E, antioxidants and omega 3 oils. Don’t just focus on the fruit though, the leaves can be dried and used for tea! This is a vigorous and attractive shrub that can grow 10-12 ft. in height if not pruned. Tolerant of alkaline and salty soil, and very cold hardy. Needs a male pollinizer for fruit set.

During the Cold War, East Germany used them as a healthful substitute for orange juice. The fruit is also unique for its oil content, which is used as a treatment for burns and skin diseases as well as for ulcers and other illnesses. You will often see Sea Buckthorn as an ingredient in many nutritional supplements and cosmetics. Sea Buckthorn berries can also be processed into fruit leather, purees and jams. Harvest out fruit by hand or by cutting off the fruit-laden branches and freezing them. The frozen berries can easily be shaken off and, after thawing, make great juice and preserves. Like cranberry juice, Sea Buckthorn juice is usually diluted with up to 70% water.

‘Cupid’ Dwarf Sour Cherry

$30.00

Cupid is a hardy deciduous hybrid shrub variety of Sour Cherry released in the Romance Series of Dwarf Sour Cherries from the University of Saskatchewan in 2004. Cupid produces the largest fruit of all the sour cherries which is dark/red and perfect for fresh eating. It tends to be a bit later than other varieties, most likely due to its size. Although sour is in their name, they can be surprisingly sweet when harvested at the right stage of ripeness. Grows well as a bushy hedge instead of pruning into a single-trunked tree.
